Whisky Reviews for Mortlach 1999 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.20 points

  1. Koloman scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A Mortlach from a first-fill bourbon barrel? Alone this makes this whisky to something very special, because Mortlach Whisky - whether original or independently bottled - almost always comes at least partially from ex-sherry casks. Here it is, so to speak, to do with Mortlach pure - and that's worth it!

      Strong, voluminous and spicy. The first-fill ex-bourbon barrel is noticeable with distinct vanilla notes that go towards cream caramel. There are also rich fruit flavors in the form of strawberry jam and applesauce.

      Still strong and spicy, but less juicy than dry. The wood emerges from the background, bringing with it white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Custard with cream makes the mouth watery and overshadows the dryness.

      A concentrated load of apple compote prepared with real vanilla and topped with creamy fat. Nutty wood, spicy, but only slightly bitter, slowly getting drier again.
